    Carry Permit for Military Police

    Hey guys, im new here but I have a question that I hope someone can answer. Im currently in Baghdad Iraq as a Military Police Officer. Im soon to return home for mid-tour leave and my CCW has long expired. I have a class that I am scheduled to attend. However I will have to take the safety class all over. What I was wondering is, is there a provision or something that would make me exempt from taking the class? That way all I would have to do is the application process through the state. Thanks for any help with this matter!

    some state will accept military experience in place of the otherwise required course. But we don't know what state you call home...

    I've been told at my unit (I'm from Tennessee and my Guard unit is there) that there is a form you can fill out if you have qualified on the M9 that will count as the Firearms Safety class.

    Not sure who you would talk to to confirm this for your state.

    If your home is Florida, or Non-Resident permits -- We honor your Active Duty ID or your DD-214 if you are out of the military as proof of training. Your status as an MP is actually irrelevant, any Military is automatically qualified in Florida. When you get a chance go online to Florida Department of Agriculture and you can get what you need to do a Non-Resident Permit. The hardest part is usually getting a Certified copy of your fingerprints or an electronic fingerprint..... You are Military Police so that is not a problem.

    You can get the forms from here:

    Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm Program
    Concealed Weapons or Firearm Program - Division of Licensing, FDACS
    Colt 1911 New Agent, CTLaser

    You do not work for them, they work for you.

    Not much chance of an accurate answer with out knowing what state you are trying to get a permit in, example...... Florida takes a DD 214 as proof of training, Utah takes nothing but their own course!

    As rstickle said, without knowing what state your talking about we can't really give much help. VA will recognize your military ID or DD214 for proof of training. So does Oklahoma.

    Florida Non-Resident permit definately. You can probably apply for it from over there if you can get your Provost to print you and sign off on it. That is assuming you are in a state that recips w/ Florida.

    archer51 said it......your DD214 'should' cover your training aspect through most states. Double check our states requirements, but I'll wager your good-to-go.

    In the state of Indiana, any active duty personnel can carry without a permit... As it should be.

    If our men and women can carry heavy ordinance in the line of duty, why shouldn't they be able to carry small arms at home?

    Tennessee will require paperwork showing pistol certification, which BTW does not go on your DD214 or NG form of release from active duty. Have your S1 make a copy of your 201 (SRB) file page showing weapon quals and have a commissioned officer certify it. Your military qualification is good for up to 5 years after release from active duty. Your service (DD214) doesn't exempt you but your service weapons qualification (201 page) does. Good luck.
